Spring bear hunting verses fall bear hunting is one better than the other? :huh:

Is the fall bear larger than it was in the spring? Is the meat better in the spring than the fall?

What's your weapon of choice? :boone:

I would love to do some spring bear hunting, unfortunly here in arizona Spring Bear is a draw only and I cant seem to draw a tag, Not sure which hunt would be the best Spring or Fall, but I do know the Pelts off a spring bear are better looking than one in fall, (in most cases) because of the hybernation, the bears have not been out rubbing all summer

Trophy Hunting: Its not about the Size of the Trophy, But the Memories and Experince Of the Hunt That count, SCOUTS OUT,

Wyoming is over the counter for residents and I usually see several thru hunting season. i have killed 2, both in Alaska. But another bear skin rug would be cool!

The fall bear is much heavier than the spring model.Their coats are better in the spring as well. As for taste, depends on what their diet was. You will find bear to be a little sweet. Make sure you remove all fat and cook it well. Various calibers will work well for blacks. I've used 12 gauge slugs 30 06 and various magnums. They all work, if you do your job.
